Sugar Baby: Confections, Candies and Cakes.

This sugar-aficionado's handbook is filled with recipes for lollipops, rock candy, marshmallows, mousse and more. Accompanied by toothsome photos and told with chef Gesine Bullock-Prado's laugh-out-loud sense of humour, Sugar Baby is a great accompaniment to a shower gift, hostess gift or a spectacular treat for yourself.

Baking a cake or a batch of cookies is not an activity that I find particularly intimidating. However, making candies from scratch seemed terrifying and outside the reach of this home cook's skill set. Enter, Sugar Baby -- a cookbook dedicated to delicious sugary treats, filled with recipes that make them accessible even to cooks who have never tried making candy at home – and just might leave you with a big sweet tooth after reading it.

The book is just as cheerful as the candies that grace its pages. You may not find yourself quitting your day job to open a candy store with this as your only reference, but it is a safe bet that you are going to add some delicious and surprisingly easy to make sweet treats to your repertoire.

Sugar Baby: Confections, Candies, Cakes & Other Delicious Recipes for Cooking with Sugar is available at Chapter.ca and Amazon.com
